Ugh, I figured I may as well bitch to you guys about it....

I noticed, today, after fixing an ignition switch issue, that my idle is hanging. So, I searched the OC and after reading some stuff I decided to take the bike apart, check my choke cable, breather tubes, etc.

Figured I may as well check the jets and needle while I was in there. Taking the black plastic cap off the carb and down goes on of the black shoulder screws into the bowels of the bike.

I searched for over an hour with a shop light, flash light, telescoping magnet. I even laid the bike down to try to shake it out. Sonofabitch.......

Inside now, I'm starving. Back at it tomorrow.

Pulled Carbs, Installed Larger main jets

04 950, Removed Carbs, Installed larger main jets, front = 178, Rear = 182.
Have not test rode yet.
I had installed a CPR air-filter system. It was running lean. Previously replaced the needles with the Factory pro ones, ran better but still a little lean.Hoping these mains will bring it in? Test ride in the morning.

Pulled my stator cover off as it was weeping oil. I suspect the gasket wasn't good. Going to apply some Threebond 1104 and reassemble.

New Exhaust

Installed a set of Leo' Vince stainless exhaust on today,,, Fit was very good. Only problem I had was to have to shim out my Jesse Luggage.

Yep. The motor is at the shop now. The engine had been putting a little oily sludge in the overflow tank for some time, which I tried my best to blame on something other than head gaskets. Then, I did a 750 mile trip with the last 250 miles at a constant 80 mph. I had about an inch of motor oil in the overflow tank the next day. So she will get a quick top-end refresh addressing some basic known issues, and I'll be back in business shortly.

haha... those highway burners will put things to the test.

Just did 280 burner in the rain at the same clip, not fun... Time for oil change and antifreeze, tires and a good clean for me...

Got some spendy hoses there, ya should have popped for the stock clamps ($15) and a tool ($30)

Good luck on the refresh...
